Vanderbilt Baseball Is Getting Pretty Good at This Triple Steal Stuff

Gabe Zaldivar@gabezalSenior Writer IIFebruary 23, 2017

Behold the rare triple steal. 

Guyism spotted a video that may lead some of you to experience a sudden wave of deja vu. That makes sense, because Vanderbilt pulled off this same move a year ago. 

Per the YouTube description, this time they pull off the magical triptych against Lipscomb on March 26, 2013 at Hawkins Field. 

If you are wondering how rare this particular feat might be, Guyism points to CBS, which tell us this hasn't happened in the majors since 2008. 

And here is Vanderbilt doing it twice in as many years. 

Here is their first triple steal taking place in May of 2012 against Florida, with the whole thing nearly bungled thanks to the guy on first base taking his sweet time. 

Now Yahoo! Sports would like to be the grump of the group and call this thing out as merely a "possible" triple steal. 

They note third base runner Xavier Turner comes down the line and looks to be tagged by catcher Taylor Stewart. What's more, Turner may have missed the plate completely. 

Perhaps. 

We like to look the other way when amazing things like this happen, especially when a program does it in consecutive years. Thank you, Mr. Umpire, for not taking this little slice of joy away from us. 

Now this should serve as a warning for any team playing Vanderbilt next season. If they get three runners on, then they are stealing. 

Hit me up on Twitter for more marvelous madness.
